Historisch-philologischer Kommentar zur Chronik des Johannes Malalas

In the 6th century CE, Johannes Malalas wrote a ‘World Chronicle’ - an account of the history of Adam up to his own time. We don’t know much about the author himself, who didn’t leave any traces outside of his chronicle: he must have worked in the higher provincial administration in Antioch (today Antakya, Turkey), because he was able to make extensive use of the archival material stored there.

Kommentierung der Fragmente der griechischen Komödie

This project is an important contribution to Greek philology and closes to some extent a gap in understanding literature of the ancient world which contributes to the history of education as well. Large parts of Greek literature are preserved as fragments rather than complete texts, especially from archaic, classical and Hellenic times. This is true not only for the Pre-Socratic and Hellenic...

Nietzsche-Kommentar

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900) was one of the most important and most influencial philosophers of western intellectual history. Nowadays, his works are seen as fundamental for the self-conception of modern thinking. His worldwide influence on philosophy, literature, anthropology, psychology, and criticism of religion and culture can scarcely be overestimated. With that in mind, it is surprising...

Religions- und rechtsgeschichtliche Quellen des vormodernen Nepal

The project will open up a corpus of documents and texts on the religious and legal history of pre-modern Nepal, which has only been partially edited so far, and make it accessible in both printed and digital form (database). The rare historical material, which arose from the tension between India and Tibet as well as Hinduism and Buddhism and is therefore unique in terms of content and scope,...

Theologenbriefwechsel im Südwesten des Reichs in der Frühen Neuzeit (1550-1620)

During the second half of the 16th century three models of the Reformation (“oberdeutsch”, lutherian, reformed) evolved in Strasbourg, Württemberg (Tübingen) and the Electoral Palatinate (Heidelberg). They strongly influenced each other but also reinforced their delimitation. The research project aims to utilise the historical source “letter” (as well as documents of dedication, reports and...
